This is just ridiculous:

…home theaters may become the new jurisdiction of our MPAA overlords. The MPAA is lobbying to make sure that home users authorize their entertainment systems before any in-home viewings. From the article: “The MPAA defines a home theater as any home with a television larger than 29” with stereo sound and at least two comfortable chairs, couch, or futon. Anyone with a home theater would need to pay a $50 registration fee with the MPAA or face fines up to $500,000 per movie shown.

*update* yes, it’s spoof. And yes, I should read the whole thing before posting. Red face here. 🙂

This man can sleep well at night. Just imagine how many homes, and lives, he has saved through his invention. Good work.
